So, I’m on a roll – both here and in the kitchen!
Last night I prepared Chicken Teriyaki tossed in fresh noodles for dinner.
As always, it’s easy, quick, and a hit with my family. (Naks! Yes, they’re my biggest and only fans.) Here’s how to cook it.
400 grams fresh noodles (I buy from my local Chinese grocer – Jashmart on Mayon Street, Quezon City. May be substituted with dry egg noodles or any thick noodles)
300 grams chicken, cut into pieces (Ideally, should be boneless chicken fillet. I only had chicken legs last night.)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp minced ginger
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
Onion leeks for garnishing
Teriyaki Sauce (slightly modified from source – Foodnetwork.com)
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
4 tbsp mirin (substitute: 4 tbsp mi jiu [Chinese rice wine] + 1 tbsp sugar)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 tsp ginger, minced
1 tbsp cornstarch
1. Prepare the teriyaki sauce by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix well until the sugar is dissolved. Adjust taste according to your preference by adding more soy sauce or sugar. Set aside.
2. Heat the cooking oil in a wok. Stir fry garlic, ginger and onions until light golden brown. Add the chicken pieces and continue stirring. Reduce heat. Cook through for a few minutes.
3. Add teriyaki sauce mixture to chicken. Give it a stir, cover wok, and let sauce thicken over low heat. It’s done when the sauce turns into a nice thick, brown glaze. Turn off heat.
4. Cook the noodles in boiling water. Drain well, place on a serving dish, and drizzle with sesame oil. Top with chicken teriyaki mixture. Garnish with chopped onion leeks. Serve while hot!
